Hope this kid turns out to be a 1st rounder that fell into our lap.....we're going to need someone to exceed their draft position after that Miller bs.

Love this pick. Was hoping Brink would slip to us (I’m really high on him), but after he went, Hoglander was my BPA on the board.

 

Two for two today. Loving this draft.

Imagine these hands with EP40:

 

Hoglander - Pettersson - Boeser

Miller - Horvat - Podkolzin

Pearson - Madden - Virtanen

Leivo - Gaudette - MacEwen

 

B)

that line up gets run over in the playoffs

Edit this lineup might not make the playoffs

Podkolzin likely should have gone top 5 so already two picks I think the Canucks snagged later then they should have fallen.

these players don't.

not sure about Gaudette or Hoglander -

Hoglander= Gaudreau- invisible in playoffs, just disappeared

Petterson needs protection

Boeser although i love this kid will get killed

Horvat will survive, Pod will have to prove it when he gets here.

That bottom 6 is nowhere near what our bottom 6 was in 2011.

Hoglander is 20 lbs heavier than Gaudreau as a 17 year old.  We don't know he will disappear.

Boeser doesn't hit, but he is big enough to survive.

Pod plays physical 

 

You seem to be starting from the point of view that they will fail until they prove otherwise.

 

Agreed about the 2011 bottom 6 being awesome though.

 

I would drop Madden and keep Beagle and move Gaudette up -- that bottom 6 survives.

Regardless on him being 20 lbs heavier he is 5'9 and we have seen and done this before with players that had all the skill and were undersized. We need size with skill up front to insulate the slighter skill players. E.G. to stop the rat bag punching Daniel so that kind of thing never happens again.

We need to draft some D. The team that is going about it right is Colorado. They have more than enough young D. As those players develop that is the scary team out west. They can sign and acquire forwards at will as they will always be available.  The D they have in place

Chicago did it with Keith and Seabrook. they recycled forwards outside of Kane and Toews.

Pittsburgh with Crosby and Malkin. Letang was the constant.

If we want to compete for a cup not just make the playoffs we need to draft smarter not just add players. 1915
